During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your dental needs.
When you arrive, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. We ask that you fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. Please assist us by providing any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months. If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.
The appointment lasts approximately 1 hour. In most cases, we clean your teeth and take X-rays. We perform a thorough exam and evaluate the diagnostic records, which help diagnose teeth decay, periodontal problems, jaw issues and signs of oral cancer. We’ll provide a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and proposed treatments. You’ll receive take-home oral hygiene instructions along with any other suggestions to help you care for your teeth.
